This is a list of some helpful Tips and tricks for Zombs.io. Feel free to add your own!
General[edit | edit source]
The gold stash is the most essential part of a base. You can only place one, and once you place it, it becomes immovable. The wave counter is counts how far you base has survived. It will not start until you place your stash, and the higher wave you are, the stronger the zombie will be. It's recommended to mine about 500-700 stone & wood before placing your stash, and to place it at the beginning of the night so you have more time to prepare. You can active auto swing by pressing space, and you can deactivate by pressing space a second time. You can find trees and stone clustered together for easier farming. Dying will cause you to loose 25% of all you materials (Stone, Wood, Gold), but waves and towers will not reset, so be careful! You can use Harvesters to increase mining productivity, to collect the resources, simply hit the Harvester once, or click 'Collect Resources'. The maximum number of towers you can place depends on the number of people in your party. It's equivalent to the amount available with 1 player, times the number of people in your party.
Base[edit | edit source]
Tip: Place your stash near a cluster of Trees and Stone for easy mining!
If you place you stash too close to Monster Camps, in lower waves they can be a nuisance to your base.
It's not recommended to make your base perfectly symmetrical. While it may look nice, Zombies are the strongest in the upper left corner and weakest in the bottom left. They are the second strongest in the bottom left, and second weakest in the top right. This means you need to divide your towers based off of which sides have the strongest zombies.
It's good to have mage towers behind the melee towers as the mage towers push the zombies away, meaning the melee towers don't take damage but do damage to zombies.
Don't use a layer of walls early game, as it tends to be a waste of resources. It may be necessary to use them later on as the zombies get progressively stronger. Try to place towers based off their radius, and damage. Example: Bombs Towers have high radius and high damage, with slow fire rate. Place them inwards of your base so towers with shorter radius are more effective. Try not to build your base directly around Trees and Stones. They can make it hard to place building in the right spots, and leave your base with weak points. When going AFK in your base, it's recommended to AFK bomb, by using the Bomb weapon, and pressing space to autohit. You can use CARL to increase the effectiveness of this.
Bosses[edit | edit source]
After every 8th wave (9th, 17th, 25th, 33rd, 41st, 49th, 57th, 65th, 73rd, 81st, 89th, 97th, 105th, 121st), a boss wave occurs. If you attack every boss with your player, when the boss dies you'll get a gold bonus (20~500k depending on the wave).
The number of bosses the spawn is equal to the number of teammates in your party.
Shop Upgrades[edit | edit source]
Try to only upgrade what you need. If your base can handle zombies on its own, focus on upgrading your pickaxe to help upgrade it faster. If it needs help, focus on upgrading your pickaxe and spear. While using spear, it's important to keep in mind you can take a lot of damage. Invest in a shield, or a Bow or Bomb for ranged combat. Health Potions can be useful when in a pinch. Use F to instantly use it, but keep in mind they cost 100 gold and have a cooldown.
Other Players[edit | edit source]
Attacking a base with any tool/weapon will draw the towers' fire, which may be avoided easily by running in a circle around that base or moving away. Throwing bombs at a player that is escaping will almost always end with a missed shoot, pick the bow for ranged PvP fights. If escaping, use resource spots as cover from ranged attacks. It is easier to find other players at night, as following zombies will lead to a base.
Do not give new party members permission to sell buildings, or they might sell all your buildings. (Remember, only give sell permission to trusted party members!)
If you want to leave a party and the leader doesn't allow you to do it , you can just open a zombs.io tab in the same server to make a party and your main player to join it.
Spells & Utility[edit | edit source]
Spells and Utility can be useful later game. There are currently only two.
The Timeout Utility causes no zombies to spawn for one wave. Using it cost 10,000 gold, and while it is in use, your score counter will not increase.
The Heal Towers spell heals towers within a certain radius. You can set the area it effects by hovering you mouse over it, and clicking to activate. You'll see a red circle with red crosses appear when it activate, and it will deactivate after a certain amount of time.
